Shaw’s Supermarket is building a store in Newton, Mass., that will get 90% of its electricity from a 400-kilowatt fuel cell powered by natural gas, according to the Patriot Ledger. This is expected to reduce the store’s energy use by up to 211,000 kilowatt-hours per year.
Shaw’s Supermarkets also plans to install LED lights in freezer cases at 25 stores, with the Newton store serving as a pilot, the report said.
Since 2002, Stop & Shop has been moving towards greener buildings. The company spent more than $12 million this year installing low-energy light bulbs, energy-efficient freezer doors and modifying refrigeration systems, according to the Patriot Ledger.
Shaw’s is a division of Supervalu.
